Important reasons to have your child immunized

Posted by UFMC Pueblo in Company News | 0 comments

Immunizations are extremely important for your child’s health. Keep them safe by making sure they are up to date on all of their shots.

Immunizations: Save your child’s life.

Throughout evolution immunizations have saved the lives of children around the world. Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children have been eliminated and have come close to extinction because of immunizations.  Polio is a great example of a disease that caused death and paralysis, that now has no reports of the disease in the US.

Immunizations: Are safe and effective.

The disease prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than any possible side effects for most children. Children are given vaccines after clinical trials and long periods of testing and review. Serious side effects, such as an allergic reaction are very rare.

Immunizations: Protect Future Generations.

Immunizations are reducing diseases every day. Your children are now the product of a generations that doesn’t have to deal with some of the diseases that were once around. For example, smallpox, a disease that no longer exists due to vaccinations. If we continue vaccinating our children, parents in the future may not have some of the diseases that we do today.

Ask your doctor about your child’s immunizations.
